One of the best things to come out of the episode was the 'free speech' discussion. By and large we acquitted ourselves pretty well, I felt.

I ain't often right
but I've never been wrong
It seldom turns out the way
it does in the song
Once in a while
you get shown the light
in the strangest of places
if you look at it right

It agree rob .
Then, no one responded as uj brought up . That was the first time I've seen that (albeit it wasn't a Tuesday @11A.M. EST.).
And Ring, maybe it was providential/fateful you were out. There's a reason for all that deleting. Maybe b/c the clarity and succinctness of your points (in that thread only of course ;-).

edit-Hey! What? Only the cool kids are out on a Sat. night? uj & I are cool .

Dig that! Totally exhausted on a Sat. night after a day of all-out Christmas preparation. (Tree, cookies, cards, lights etc.) Merry Christmas, Sean.

Really wanted to be there for the last one... but we were traveling the next morning, lots to do. I promise to try to make it.

"no one responded"

If that were only true.

Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

"But I'm not gonna let it bother me tonight
I'm not gonna let it bother me tonight
Tomorrow I might go as far as suicide
But I won't let it bother me tonight."

??
No one did directly respond. However, I would advise that to continue to perseverate on that topic would be unwise.
The poem was unsettling. Not a gentle topic before bed.
Talk to you tomorrow Bill.

sorry to be unsettling...nothing to worry about though

"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."

The Atlanta Rhythm Section to Macbeth (killer scene-Ha!)
is a trip I've never taken . My Dad used to listen to ARS , but I was young and wasn't that into it .
Bill , your posts have a jovial nature about them these days . Christmas spirit or a small drought of Christmas cheer ? ;-)

Oh a little of both; more spirit than spirits and tempered with just a touch(just the right amount) of those old holiday blues.
